Yesterday + + + +

Don’t be offended when your pastor “preaches against” x (or you see a post on social media). Your pastor hopefully spends extended time with his Bible & hours per week in prayer & meditation. He may see a danger in a modern trend, see it as a total time-waster, or see it as immoral. Try to see (whether you presently agree or not) that he feels he should warn you. He loves you & wants you to go to heaven.

Yesterday I was blessed to arrive

At the milestone of seventy-five.

The Lord mentioned a “potential”

A decade on top of years: three score

And so far He’s allow five me more

Thank God for what’s been Providential.

The Old Testament (OT) is like the Old Country (OC). There’s no denying we came from the OC. “Came from” means we’re no longer there! The Cross separates the Testaments like the ocean separates the OC from the New. We reference both the OT & OC, we’ve reasons to reflect on the OT or OC but, emphatically, we’re NOT in either OT or OC. I was born in the NT & the NC & I’m grateful for both. – eab, 2/6/18

Watch what you collect. You can’t collect everything; one collection will cause you to neglect another. Earthly collections stay on earth. Eternal “items” go into eternity with you – if you go Up. J

Rev 22:19

“…if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life…”


Sadly too many “christians” confuse humor with Joy. You can have deep Joy without a great sense of humor. Or you can be funny (making others laugh) with no real joy. “…Woe unto you that laugh now!…” (Luk 6.25) “…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning” (Psa 30.5b).
